What Is Hyaluronic Acid? Quick Refresher Of Benefits and Products

06 April

Hyaluronic acid (HA) is an important natural substance found in several areas of the body, including the eyes, the joints, and the bodily fluids. Almost 50% of the body’s HA is found in the skin. HA supplies lubrication to the joints, and it also has anti-aging properties. It plays an important role in keeping the skin healthy and looking young.

What does HA do?

HA helps the skin to retain moisture and increase its flexibility and elasticity. HA can capture moisture and retain it for a long period of time, which keeps the skin moisturized, healthy, hydrated, and supple. Hyaluronic acid reduces premature signs of aging, including the formation of wrinkles and sagging of the skin.

HA Benefits

As the skin ages, it does not retain moisture as well as it used to. Thus, the skin starts to sag and wrinkle. HA can reduce the signs of aging skin, and it has many other benefits as well.

  • It smooths out fine lines and wrinkles.
  • It tones and firms the skin.
  • It restores moisture to the skin.
  • It lubricates achy joints.
  • It treats dry eyes and reduces general discomfort in the eye.

 

What products contain HA?

1. Soft tissue fillers

Dermal fillers are used to fill in depressions, such as wrinkles, scars, and other areas where volume has been lost. HA-based dermal fillers are very popular, safe, and widely used for various reasons. These injections can improve facial contours and smooth out the skin for a more youthful appearance. HA-based dermal fillers can be used to treat the following conditions and areas of the face:

  • Cheek depressions;
  • Crow’s feet;
  • Deep smile lines;
  • Frown lines;
  • Marionette lines;
  • Icepick scars;
  • Thinning lips;
  • Dehydrated skin on the face, neck, decollete, and backs of the hands.

2. Osteoarthritis fillers

HA injections are used in the treatment of knee pain due to osteoarthritis. Hyaluronic acid injections work similarly to a naturally occurring substance in the joints called synovial fluid. Synovial fluid naturally has hyaluronic acid. As an injectable treatment, HA works as both a lubricant and a shock absorber. These injections should only be administered by, and on the recommendation of, a doctor. It is a simple procedure that involves injecting HA directly into the joint.

4. Skincare products

Skincare products containing HA can be highly effective. They can provide immediate results and are used to treat a wide range of issues. HA in these products work by rehydrating the skin, which may also help to reduce fine lines. Continuous use can maintain optimal skin hydration and prevent premature lines caused by dry skin.

 

There are many benefits of using HA. Today, it can be found in many anti-aging beauty and skincare products. Talk to a licensed medical practitioner about which hyaluronic acid-based products may be right for you, such as ZO Skin Health Products or dermal fillers such as Belotero and Juvederm.
